Amherst - Mill Street River

In January of 2018, E.T.& L. Corp. was low bidder on a $2.1 million project to replace the Mill Street bridge over the Mill River in Amherst, MA. This project includes the removal and disposal of the existing bridge foundations and bridge superstructure and constructing a new 37’-6” long single span bridge carrying one, one-way vehicle lane and one multi-use path. The project also includes installation of channel scour protection, minor adjustments to the horizontal and vertical roadway alignments, and reconstruction of the existing roadway approaches. The bridge, originally built in 1906, was closed to vehicular traffic due to safety concerns in 2012 after an inspection revealed that rust had deteriorated the I-beams that support the bridge. Construction is expected to be complete in 2019.
